Personal Statement
98 Words
Interest in med/sci/math
There are moments in life, however small or large, that can change your path forever. For me, that moment happened to be a high school chemistry class. I remember looking at my teacher and having an epiphany; everything suddenly made sense. From that moment on, I knew I was meant to study science - I couldn't imagine anything more beautiful than the understanding it granted me.

What set me apart from other applicants
305 Words
I honestly believe that I got into Brown because my grades weren't the only thing to define me.

Brown University and it student body are nearly impossible to put into words. Quite frankly, the term "liberal" school doesn't even begin to describe it, nor does it accurately represent just how amazing it truly is. Most people don't realize that Brown is and Ivy League school, and it's not hard to imagine why. The Ivy League stereotype is full of stuffy rich kids and intense, studious future lawyers and doctors wearing business casual all day, every day. While those people can certainly be found at Brown, that's because you can find someone of every type here. There is a...
